I'm going to start a build page for my 95 YJ 4cyl 5spd. I bought my jeep February 2014 it was in rough shape but mechanically good, other than 4wd didn't engage but that was disclosed by PO .

Question for anyone reading this. I'm trying to decide if I want to paint the lower half doors the same green as the good parts or leave them flat black? Possibly the rims if not the doors just to break it up a little. Let me know thoughts please

Looks good. Did the similar thing. Ended up moving gas filler opening around the side and putting back up lights under brake lights. Makes filling it with gas much easier. No 90' bend. Put liscence plate on bumper. Cant wait to see your ideas. That's what's nice about this forum. Were abouts in Ny are ya. I'm in Watkins glen.

I actually mounted the bottom mount hole under the trim for the gas filler worked out well. I had thought about moving the fill location, but didn't want to curse what is working well (knocks on wood)
